Author Biography

I sat alongside Rapunzel as she draped her gorgeous hair down the side of a tower. I shared a box car with other children. I've zoomed to faraway planets and lived as an alligator, a wise wizard, a fairy godmother, and a private eye. Books have always been my portal to adventures.

My career journey has taken me from a teacher to a principal, to a college instructor, and into retirement as a writer. With 38 exciting years in education, I've gathered many ideas for creating children's manuscripts. I look forward to sharing them with my readers.

My dream is to hear a child say, "Read it again!" and know they're pleading for one of my books.

In Chick-A-Bunga by Gail Kamer, Feathers is a chicken living on a farm, who desperately wants to fly like all the other birds. Feathers spends her days coming up with crazy ideas to help her achieve her dream, but none of them work out like she planned, and she often ends up falling on her face. Feathers is determined to realize her dream, though, with the help of her farm friends, who put up with her schemes, even offering her their own tail feathers with which to make a pair of wings.

Chick-A-Bunga by Gail Kamer is a fun story and the pictures are great. Kids would really enjoy the images and the story. Feathers proves that perseverance pays off in the end. Her chicken friends are funny, especially their thoughts on what Feathers is doing, with them eating popcorn while watching her latest escapade, but they still help her even if they do think she is crazy. As real friends should, although Feathers does take precautions such as a parachute to save her when she fails to fly. Overall, I do think it has a positive message for kids of never giving up on your dreams, even if they don’t work out the first time around. Keep trying and you will get there in the end, even if it is not in the way you expected. I would recommend this story for young readers.
